I recently ordered a number of bare root pampas grass plants online from a nursery. They will be here any day now. I'm in zone 7, USA.

I'm a new gardener, this is my question, since I won't be able to plant them in the ground yet, until spring is here......What should I do with the bare roots when they get here? Should I plant them inside, and then replant them outside in a few weeks?? Thanks for any guidance.

I would suggest you put them into a bucket of water till your able to plant......The plant should come with directions.. all send them.

Why can't you plant them? Is the ground still frozen there? I'm in zone 7 and the ground never freezes for more than a few days, at most.

My mail order plant instructions said to plant bare root plants right away, and you can do this even if the ground is frozen/cold. I have had fairly good results doing this, and I'm in zone 7b. YOu only want to soak the woody plants in water from what I understand, not perrenials or vines.
Good luck!
